    hello guys,
    I have a bass amp:
    I want to know if the cabinet ORANGE OBC810 has a better sound.

    Yes. Much. A 410/115 is a terrible rig unless the 410 is 4 ohms & the 115 is 8 ohm. But then the Orange head can't be used because it doesn't support a 2 ohm load, it's minimum is 4 ohms. Doesn't matter that lots of guys might use a 410/115 (both 8 ohm boxes), it's terrible. Lots of guys have no idea of what they're doing, they're listening with their eyes.
  3. If those are your only two options go with the 810. Personally I think you can get a much better cab for that kind of money.

    hello "iualum"
    I'm sorry, but I'm not very good with English.
    explain, the two are both 8 ohm cabinet ORANGE.
    I want to know whether it is worth selling my OBC410-OBC115 to buy the OBC810.
    I do not have transportation problems. In short, it's worth?

    Only you can answer that. Personally I'd rather have an 810 than anything, but I know little of Orange's current stuff except a couple of their little combos.

    Yes, it is worth doing. I will try to explain iualum's comment in simpler terms--please let me know if it needs more explanation.

    Both are 8 ohms, so power divides equal to each. OBC410 uses power 2x better than OBC115. 115 will sound bad and destruct at 1/2 power 410 can handle.

    Using 4 ohm 810 means all speakers have equal ability to use power. More safe, more efficient, more loud.

    Yes, if it must be Orange, then the 810 is much better.

    Just as a heads up, the 810 will be stupidly heavy. My orange 410 is ~95lb, so I hate to imagine what the 810 will weigh.
  10. +1

    Not my first choice for a big cab either.

    LOL :D , nor my 2nd or 3rd for that matter, either. Just being honest & objective.

    Have you considered a matching second cab to your current setup, and selling the other?
    Like selling the OBC115 and buying a second OBC410 - or selling the 410 and buying a second 115 (which would be my choice ;)) That way you match your speakers but don't have to carry the weight of a single 810 cab and still maintain your modular setup.

    Sell the 115 and get another 410 - you'll thank yourself later
